NEWS: Watch tonight's game on iFollow or Sky Sports Red Button

24 February 2021

Coventry City's away game against Swansea City will be available to watch on iFollow this Wednesday, as well as Sky Sports Red Button.

The Sky Blues travel to the Liberty Stadium on Wednesday 24th February at St Andrew's, with a 7pm kick-off for the behind-closed-doors Sky Bet Championship clash.

Coverage is available on iFollow for fans in the UK and overseas, with revenue from match passes purchased going to the Sky Blues.

4-camera iFollow video coverage is available in HD. Due to this being an away game, there is no BBC CWR commentary due to the BBC travel restrictions during lockdown - there will be a 'neutral' commentary for tonight's game available instead.

The match is also being shown on the Sky Sports Red Button - the Club does not receive additonal revenue from this. 

Match Passes on iFollow:

Fans can purchase a Match Pass for just £10 and stream the action on Wednesday night!

Technical help for iFollow:

Support and technical help for fans is available by emailing ifollow@efl.com or using the Live Chat function on the website during the match - please do not contact CCFC by email/social media for technical help with iFollow.
 
A Frequently Asked Question sheet is available - this includes info on logging in, resetting passwords and what to do if your video stream is not loading.To view the FAQ Sheet click here.
 
 
Remember - the quality of the iFollow stream will relate directly to your internet speed! If your feed is buffering, you can reduce the quality of the feed on iFollow. 
 

Sky Sports Red Button:

The game is available to watch via the Red Button on Sky Sports Football.

This is one camera standard definition coverage, without replays, and with commentary from Sky Sports.

Coventry City do not receive additional revenue from fans watching via this method. We are not able to provide any technical support for fans watching via the Red Button.

 

PIRACY:

The EFL and Coventry City are actively taking steps to prevent illegal streaming of matches to other fans via accounts on Facebook, YouTube etc, 

Illegal streaming is depriving Coventry City of important revenue at a time when funds for the Club are already affected by the Coronavirus Pandemic, and when money received from iFollow is vital in providing support for the Football Club and Manager Mark Robins.

The EFL are actively looking to prosecute people caught streaming these games illegally.

*Commentary on iFollow - Clarification

For home games, iFollow video coverage will continue to also include commentary from BBC CWR as previously.

Unfortunately for away games, current BBC coronavirus reporting restrictions mean that BBC commentary teams, including BBC CWR, are now not attending away games in person. This means that the commentary that we normally provide will no longer be available for away matches.

BBC CWR are providing their audio commentary from their studios using our video footage streamed on iFollow - this means it is not possible for this commentary to then be added to the video footage.

For all away games, the default audio setting for all Sky Blues supporters is now the in-stadium sound. Subject to availability, a feed from the opposition club commentary will be provided as an additional option for Sky Blues fans.

Swansea City do not use the iFollow platform, and therefore we have arranged a 'neutral' commentary option to be available to fans tonight.
